Treading....

real life wow GIF by Amanda Cee Media Giphy

Tread on the living, they make not a mumble.
Tread on the dead, they mutter and grumble.

This is such a good D&D riddle.

All the Men

One night four men sat down to play;

They played all night 'til break of day.

They played for gold and not for fun

With separate scores for everyone.

When it came time to square accounts,

All men had made quite fair amounts.

Can you the paradox explain,

If no man lost, how could all gain?

RealJohnGillman

They're musicians, playing instruments, reading different scores (sheet music). They were all paid by either listeners or whoever had them play.

Ooh, I heard a good one.

With pointed fangs and in plain sight, my bloodless victims are bound by my bite. What am I?

EDIT: Anyone wanna try this for a spell?

I am heavy forward, I weigh a lot. But when I am backwards I'm certainly not. What am I?

EDIT: Can do a third and final to stroke your spinal?

For some I cause joy, for some I cause strife. Treat me well and I last for life. What am I?

All the teas....

tea GIF Giphy

Two girls went to dinner together and both ordered iced tea. One girl pounded down five of them in about a minute, and the other took her time drinking one.

The girl who drank one died, while the girl who drank five survived. However, all of the drinks that were served turned out to contain poison.

Why did the girl that drank more iced tea survive?

Bullseye61

The poison was in the ice.

Windowless....

There is a windowless room with only a single door. Inside the room is a lamp, when the lamp is on no light escapes the room. Outside the room are 3 switches one of which operates the lamp. You can use the switches in any order any number of times. The door can only be opened once and after you enter the room you can immediately know which switch turns on the light. How is it possible?

Agarlis

Turn on the first switch, wait a few minutes.

Turn the first off and the second on.

Go into the room. If the light is on, it's the second switch. If it's off, touch it. If it's hot, it's the first switch, and if it's cold, it's the third.

To Sleep

The maker doesn't want it.

The buyer doesn't use it.
The user doesn't know it.

Not the 'best' but a fun one: A coffin.

What is it?

It is the beginning of eternity, the end of time and space.

It is the start of every end, the end of every place.

What is it?

I love this one because it is so simple but some people have struggled with it for days lol. It works best when spoken out loud rather then written out. Seeing it written makes it easier to solve because the answer to the riddle, is contained within the riddle itself.

What is in the water in the United States that compels people to walk around in their homes with their shoes on? Try doing that in South Korea––people would be so mortified. I have a sibling whose apartment is carpeted from wall to wall and who walks around inside with his shoes on all the time, tracking in any manner of dirt and dust from outside. Egad! I get chills just thinking about it. And as an American, it's something I've noticed people from other countries love to comment on.

We learned a lot more about things that are considered normal in other countries after Redditor monitonik asked the online community,

"What's normal in your country that's considered weird in others?"

The brain a fascinating part of the body. No, its the most fascinating.

Scientists have said for years that we'll never know all about the brain and its functions.

So if it is so fascinating and so capable and awesome... why does it stall? Why does it overload?

Why aren't we all gifted with photographic memory? The brain definitely has a full storage issue. And we all suffer.

Redditor u/MABAMA45 wanted everyone to fess up to and just embrace all the things the brain can't handle by asking:

What can your brain just not comprehend?

Going to college is an exciting experience. You meet new people, learn about the world and the inner workings of society, and make lasting friendships. As fun (and expensive *cough, cough*) as higher education can be there is a reason that only one-third of the US population 25 and older have been able to complete a four-year degree program. It is hard and burnout is real.

Going through university was filled with both happiness and sometimes tears for me. I loved school and found my classes interesting, dove into extracurriculars, and had that perfectionist drive to get all A's... totally not sustainable. It hit me I was totally burnt out about two years in while enrolled in an algebra class.
